Twelve hours into the official start of NBA free agency, the Minnesota Timberwolves had announced no transactions, but rumors about possible trades continued to swirl.

The latest came from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, which reported late Wednesday morning that Chicago Bulls forward Kyle Korver "likely" is headed to the Wolves in a trade.

Korver, 31, has averaged 9.5 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 664 NBA games over nine seasons. His best days came in Philadelphia, where he scored a career-best 14.4 points per game in 2006-07.

The 76ers traded him to Utah the following season. Korver spent the past two seasons with the Bulls, averaging 8.1 points a game last season. He's a 41.3% career shooter from 3-point range, including 43.5% last season.

The Wolves have been trying to work out a sign-and-trade with Portland for their top free agent, restricted free-agent forward Nicolas Batum, but as of late Wednesday morning nothing was done.
